Apple Cider Northern New England

If you are looking for a true taste of fall, then our real estate agents have a suggestion that no one should overlook: Apple cider donuts. This special brand of baked good is something you'll spot all across Northern New England, with variations in every state and even in some cities.

Cider is a fermented drink made from fruit, typically apples. It can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic and is a wonderful part of the fall season for families all over the region. With so many family-owned bakeries all over New England, it seems like everyone has their own take on this "can't miss" breakfast staple.

The coming of fall marks the start of cider season, which usually means mulled, spiced cider suitable for all ages. For generations, the people of New England have savored this seasonal specialty in front of the fire. Connoisseurs seek it out with gusto, like fans in other areas might look for their favorite eggnog.

Bakeries, orchards, and farms serve up memorable and one-of-a-kind versions of this treat for a seasonal taste of what the area has to offer.

Get in the fall spirit, and let's take a closer look at just a few places to find delicious apple cider donuts in New England:

  • The Bakeshop on Kelley Street – 171 Kelley Street, Manchester, NH 03102
    The Bakeshop on Kelley Street is a cafe that focuses on the fresh, local, and delicious handmade baked goods. Cider doughnuts come in a wide range of flavors, from the classic glazed to caramel, maple, maple bacon, cinnamon sugar, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and more. They're all presented in small batches for the very best in freshness. 

  • Carter Hill Orchard – 73 Carter Hill Road, Concord, NH 03303
    Billing itself as "New Hampshire's Neighborhood Apple Orchard," Carter Hill Orchard is more than a bakery. You can enjoy the selection of pies, breads, cookies, and some of the most sought-after apple cider donuts in the area, of course – but you could also stay for a full day of fun with "Pick Your Own" blueberries and peaches. You'll be surrounded by nature while you stock up on the freshest produce.

  • Sunnycrest Farm – 59 High Range Road, Londonderry, NH 03053
    Sunnycrest Farm is a real working farm that attracts thousands of guests of all ages for its annual Pick Your Own season featuring blueberries, peaches, fall raspberries, and plums – a truly lovely variety of iconic fall produce. At the attached farmers market and bakery, you can sample apple cider donuts from a family recipe passed down for generations.

  • Mack's Apples – 230 Mammoth Road, Londonderry, NH 03053
    Mack's Apples was established all the way back in 1732. In addition to the beloved New England Pick Your Own experience, it boasts a full farm market and an ice cream store. Open through October, its creamy, frozen treats come from Massachusetts, while the apple cider donuts are made right on site from Mack's delectable heirloom apples. You'll want to come back again and again for these seasonal treats.

  • The Holy Donut – 194 Park Avenue, Portland, ME 04102
    As the name suggests, The Holy Donut is famed for donuts that taste divine. The secret is in the batter: These aren't just any donuts, but authentic Maine potato donuts. That gives them a completely different feel and texture compared to what most visitors are used to and helps flavors like the apple cider donut deliver greater depth and delight. 

  • Tony's Donut Shop – 9 Bolton Street, Portland, ME 04102
    Tony's Donut Shop is a trusted name for handmade donuts and pastries right in Portland, Maine. Open from 5 a.m. every morning (and to 6 p.m. almost every day), it's where locals look when they want the perfect donut to pair with their morning coffee. Not surprisingly, Tony's has made a reputation for some of the best local apple cider donuts, along with a panoply of other classic and inventive flavors.

  • Thompson's Orchards – 276 Gloucester Hill Road, New Gloucester, ME 04260
    Thompson's Orchards could just become one of your favorite local stops. It is a Maine apple orchard that has operated since 1906. Praised for its freshly baked apple pies, its fans have also been known to reserve its apple cider donuts weeks in advance. It even has a picturesque gazebo to rent for weddings and other special events.
